Hillsdale Neighborhood – Your New Home
The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641
Hillsdale is Portland’s quintessential suburban neighborhood, a cozy enclave just far enough away from downtown to feel like an escape. Spend the day with family at its popular public library; catch up with friends over coffee and pastries at iconic local bakery Baker & Spice; shop for groceries old-school style at either Fred Meyer or Coop Groceries — then cap off your evening sipping craft beers in nearby McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery! And don’t forget: during summer months, grab some locally grown goodies and enjoy community vibes galore down by the weekly farmers market!
The neighborhood can be walkable depending on where you live. Parts are too hilly to make walking convenient, and some streets lack highways. It’s easiest to walk if you live near the commercial areas, which tend to be in strip malls concentrated along certain streets of Hillsdale, particularly on Capitol Highway.
The neighborhood offers plenty of parks. Runners and cyclists love George Himes park, while runners enjoy the trails stretched along SW Terwilliger Boulevard. Dog owners frequent Hillsdale Park, while parents prefer the playground at DeWitt Park. Just south of Hillsdale is the expansive Gabriel Park.
Hillsdale offers a peaceful atmosphere, with winding residential streets and established neighborhoods. Perfect for retirees craving relaxation or young professionals seeking the small-town suburban life – all while having access to Portland’s vibrant amenities. And that’s not even counting the stunning views of Oregon’s biggest city from atop its rolling hills!
